Back To School!
The American Journal of Psychiatry reported that children who experience malnutrition have an increased risk of behavioral disorders and aggressive behavior as they grow older. The study looked at children between 8 and 17 years of age and found disturbing evidence that children who suffered certain nutritional deficiencies had a 41% increase in aggression by age 8. At age 17, they demonstrated a 51% increase in violent and antisocial behavior. The food they were eating and the nutrients they were missing out on each day were critical factors. According to a study conducted by the University of Southern California, poor nutrition in the early years leads to low IQ and antisocial behavior that may continue into later life.
Give These Kid-Approved Recipes a Try!
Numerous clinical trials have shown that proper nutrition can help children develop to their highest potential, focus better and be more attentive. Positive self-image and more energy can also be a result of great nutrition. Kids and Teens can be some of our biggest critics when it comes to homemade recipes, and with schedules tightening during the school year, a little help in the form of a tried-and-true recipe is always appreciated.
It can be challenging to keep your go-to meals and snacks interesting and new – not to mention healthy! Think colorful, savory, and secretly sweet to keep your kids satisfied throughout the day and into the night. See what you can come up with from fruits and vegetables, low fat dairy options, 100% whole grain breads and lean meat selections. Cutting them into fun shapes, or preparing them into creative dishes always helps. Dips like hummus and natural peanut butter are also great ways to get kids excited about their food and to try new things. Offer children a variety of healthy food choices each day. And, make sure you eat healthy, too. Modeling good food choices is so important for parents, grandparents and caregivers. Eniva products support a healthy lifestyle that starts early in childhood.
